The coat of arms and flag of Zavrč are prescribed by Decision Odlok o grbu in zastavi Občine Zavrč, adopted 27 September 1997 and published in the official Slovene gazette Uradni list Republike Slovenije, 1, 9 January 1998, pp. 93-4, signed 12 December 1997, with effect on 9 January 1998.
The symbols were designed by Valt Jurečič of Heraldika d.o.o. and Heraldica Slovenica, who kindly provided drawings from which the images shown on this page were made.
The flag is rectangular, in proportions 2:5, made of a green square at hoist and yellow-green-yellow stripes in the rest of the flag. In the green square there is the wine press from the coat of arms.

Coat of arms of Zavrč - Image by Željko Heimer, 20 October 2002
The coat of arms of Zavrč is described in Article 8 of the Decision and blazoned as "Azure a castle argent roofed gules issuant from a mount vert, in base a wine press or".
The rest of the Article describes the coat of arms in more details. The wine press is used for pressing the ripe grapes in wine production. It is obvious that the wine industry has strong roots in the area.
